aquaenviro odours   A group of experts will be attending this 1st of December 2016 in Leeds an event about Emissions and Odours Control organized by Aquaenviro. It is now a couple of years since the last event about Best Practice in Odour Control Management that took place the 6th February 2014 in Nottingham.

   Nuisance emissions can have a substantial impact upon the quality of peoples’ life especially when it is associated with waste handling and treatment plants, wastewater and sludge treatment plants and the application of materials to land. In the UK, nuisance odours from industrial, trade and business premises are regulated by local councils under the Environment Act 1990 and controlled under H4 guidance.

This event is structured in several talks that discuss in detail some key subjects to take into account when dealing with environmental odour management. The program can be downloaded here and it does include many interesting talks. This is the list of presentations.
